This is the first major survey of the work of Australian Indigenous artists engaging with the photographic medium and the portrait. Showcasing a range of techniques from classical black-and-white portraiture to digital imagery, the exhibition offers an unprecedented insight into the black experience that transcends national borders and the harsh reality of the everyday.
* Please note: The Yiribana Gallery will be closed temporarily from late November as a new escalator is installed. Highlights from the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander collection will be featured in the exhibition Country, Culture, Community.
